A new type of Disney World park seasonal pass is here, and we’re pretty excited about it!
Disney World’s water parks have had quite the year with Blizzard Beach reopening after an extended refurbishment, debuting a new Frozen-themed area, and then closing it again — which may have left a few folks feeling pretty let down by the water park options at Disney World. But now it looks like Disney is looking to lessen the blow a bit by offering a water park seasonal pass option.
Disney World is most often talked about for its 4 theme parks — Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom — but with costs rising for theme park ticket pricing and annual passes, sometimes we’re left looking for other things to do. As the fall season and holiday crowds migrate into the main theme parks at Disney World it’s easy to get the itch to want to do something that might not feel as crowded and a little less muggy in the Florida heat.
As of late, Disney World water parks have only been available as stand-alone day ticket purchases, or add-ons to multi-day theme park tickets, and as an additional option to Annual Passes. But now, get ready to make a splash though because Disney’s offering the opportunity for just that in a water park season pass!
The Disney Water Park Season Pass will allow you to visit either of Disney World’s two water parks — Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon or Disney’s Blizzard Beach — with no blackout dates to the passholder until May 24th, 2024. Disney encourages you to check the park operations calendar to see which park is open on the days you intend to visit. This new pass is on sale now through Disney World’s website for $79+ tax to anyone age 10 and older, and $73+ tax for children ages 3-9.
A quick look at Disney’s website lists an adult 1-day water park ticket for $69+ tax on any regular day admission with no blackout dates so for roughly $10 more you’ll have the option to visit for months to come. The best part about this season pass is that it gives the passholder the flexibility to visit the Disney World water parks more regularly without having to purchase an annual pass for the other parks if they weren’t intending to spend a lot of time there.
Additionally, Disney’s fine print goes on to reiterate that currently no park reservations are needed to visit the water parks — which has been a prevalent complaint for the other theme park goers since it was implemented. They do go on to say however that while they’re not necessary now, that is always subject to change in the future.
We think this could be a step in the right direction for folks that have been crying out for changes to the ticketing structure for Disney World up to this point and we’ll be interested to see how popular this season pass option turns out to be.
